  • 15 January 1973
The relation of the middle ear reflexes to the olivochochlear efferent system and the extrapyramidal system was discussed and a parallel slower, pentobarbital sensitive pathway was found. Expand
Dose and time-dependent protection of the antioxidant N-l-acetylcysteine against impulse noise trauma
Results suggest that NAC can partially protect the cochlea against impulse noise trauma, and hair cell loss was significantly reduced using a schedule of three NAC injections in the rats. Expand
Protection against noise trauma by pre-exposure to a low level acoustic stimulus
Guinea pigs were pre-exposed to a low level acoustic stimulus prior to exposure to a stimulus known to yield a permanent threshold shift. This pre-treatment resulted in: 1) approximately a 20 dBExpand
MRI acoustic noise: Sound pressure and frequency analysis
The unflltered linear peak values provided more accurate measurements of the SPL and spectral content of the MRI acoustic noise than the commonly used dB A‐weighted scale, which filters out the predominant low frequency components. Expand
Eighth nerve fiber firing features in normal-hearing rabbits
Neural activity of single eighth nerve fibers was recorded with glass microelectrodes in anesthetized normal-hearing rabbits and there was a weak negative correlation between spontaneous rate and tip threshold. Expand
The middle-ear muscles.
The characteristics of the reflex have become so well known that deviations from the normal re­ sponse serve as a basis for diagnosing various hearing disorders and neuro­ logical conditions. Expand
A quantitative study of the effect of the acoustic stapedius reflex on sound transmission through the middle ear of man.

The influence on sound transmission through the middle ear as exerted by the acoustic stapedius muscle reflex, has been investigated in subjects with unilateral peripheral facial paralysis of shortExpand
Age-related loss of auditory sensitivity in two mouse genotypes.
Frequency-specific auditory brainstem responses (ABR) were used to describe age-dependent alterations in frequency sensitivity in CBA/ca and C57BL/6J mouse genotypes, and it was shown that, for C57 mice, the degenerative process was more precipitous with three phases, and that the individual variability was larger than that of CBA mice.

Ear and hearing problems in 44 middle-aged women with Turner's syndrome
The present study has investigated ear and hearing problems in 44 women with Turner's syndrome and found a progressive high frequency hearing loss was added to the dip leading to severe hearing problems earlier in the Turner women than age-matched controls. Expand
Speech and language development in a population of Swedish hearing-impaired pre-school children, a cross-sectional study.
OBJECTIVE There is little information on speech and language development in pre-school children with mild, moderate or severe hearing impairment. The primary aim of the study is to establish aExpand
